Name: Lucy Adams
Role: Joint Head Girl at Emma Lavelle Racing
From: Stratton Audley, Oxfordshire
Worked in racing since: 2014. I worked previously for trainer Alex Hales Racing and also for David Barker managing their hunters.
How did you get into racing: I’ve ridden ponies/horses since a child and competed in Pony Club. Both my parents are horsey and my dad used to help train point-to-pointers, my best friend was also really into the sport which also got me interested.
Career highlight to date: Taking Junction Fourteen over to Ireland to race in the Galway Plate.
Role model: David Annett ‘Bodge’, who used to be Alex Hales’s head lad. I try to live up to how he ran the yard and his outlook on life.
My three dinner guests would be: Prince Harry (even though he is now sadly taken!), Sam Thompson and William Fox-Pitt.
When not racing/working: I relax by enjoying a glass of wine and reading trashy magazines!
